live from senator john mccain and lindsay graham on this show yesterday. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> and in a moment that felt much more 2008 than 2012, senator john mccain took to the senate floor telling the president that he's responsible for benghazi. the senator doubling down on the "today show" this morning. >> i'm not taking anybody on. we owe it to their families. we owe to its to other americans. for the president of the united states for two weeks to deny that that was the case is a coverup or incompetence. either one of the two. >> joining me now is capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. what are you hearing about the exact focus of the meeting? some are beginning certain briefings yesterday. >> well, thomas, there's an effort here to try to separate out what has been a complicated and troubling society of facts with respect to what happened with general petraeus and leaving the cia. all of
and i think that john mccain came out just today and said he was opposed to her nomination. i don't think that's a fair statement because susan rice was simply following the advice from general petraeus who john mccain says was a hero so there's a great deal of inconsistency in the republican messaging that needs to be answered. >> mccain's biggest obstacle is the fact she went on the sunday talkers and talked about the video that -- >> and she was following the talking points given to her by general petraeus of cia. how can you say that petraeus is a hero on the one hand but susan rice who is following general petraeus' talking points is not. >> the president has his first press conference coming up in just a couple of hours and as we have been highly aware, the fiscal cliff is certainly going to be a big conversation but can the president get the focus where it needs to be when it comes to the fiscal cliff especially when we have people like paul ryan giving interviews saying he's showing back up in washington, d.c. pretty much the same way he left? >> well, there is clearly a h

john mccain as secretary of state. martha: what you think about that? >> i like john mccain very much. i think john kerry would be a choice before john mccain. but it would probably be a good idea to reach across the aisle. but you are trying to litigate the election. saying that obama did nothing but obamacare, which is not true. let's move forward and realize. unfortunately -- [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> we have a debt ambassador in libya. [talking over each other] >> is that susan rice's fault? we need to get to the bottom of this. >> you are arguing what we argued a month ago. martha: regardless of what we see here today, there is testimony being given right now. it is honestly a hot issue and remains so. we know that we will hear from general david petraeus in the coming days. there is more to be told and we will get to the bottom of it. we will see whether susan rice continues to stand by as we move forward in the process. bill: 12 minutes away, we have jon scott and jenna lee on "happening now." martha: and we are awaiting a news conference on the att
and republican senators john mccain and lindsay graham. it began to escalate earlier this morning when the senators vowed to stand in the way of the president if -- if he goes ahead and nominates the united nations ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton secretary of state. mccain and graham are scathing of rice's early remarks about the deadly attack on the u.s. diplomats in benghazi, libya. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americans when it seems to be that the story coming out of the administration. and she's the point person, is so disconnected to reality. i don't trust her. and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better. and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. somebody has got to start paying a price around this place. >> let's see what happens here. but we will do whatever's necessary to block the nomination that's within our power as far as susan rice is concerned. >> all right. listen to the president's very, very angry response to senators mccain and graham during that white house news conference.
john mccain the moderate because they think he's a crazy liberal. lindsey graham is closely allied with john mccain and so a lot of the right wing sees them as birds of the same feather. they call them republican in name only,rinos. the pressure is pretty strong. against it. >> jennifer: are there others that you're aware of, maybe that sahil wasn't thinking about. >> lamar alexander, senator from tennessee left the republican leadership a year, year and a half ago because he said he wanted more freedom to do what is right. you've got another senator from tennessee, bob corker who is often talked about on issues of cli carbohydrate change. -- of climate change. >> jennifer: he's good on electric vehicles. he was instrumental of getting it to come to tennessee. the day after the election, majority leader harry reid said he was going to seek filibuster reform. let's take a listen. >> i think that the rules have been abused and that we're going to work to change -- do away with the filibuster, but we're going to
, senator john mccain weighs in on it all. >>> and guy's new restaurant gets one of the harshest reviews ever written. a drink that tastes like radiator fuel, guy fights back in a live interview today, thursday, november 15th, 2012. >>> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a thursday morning, i'm savannah gurthrie. >> and i'm matt lauer. we'll talk about major breaking news in a minute. but the review you talked about about guy fieri's restaurant, i have never read a review like this. and a lot of people are wondering, is this fair? the kind of review that should be written? or did this go across some kind of a line? >> yeah, use whatever word you want to use, roasted, fileted, skewered. when the review starts out guy fieri, have you eaten at your new restaurant in time square? we look forward to a response. >> looking forward to what he has to say. >>> also a developing story in israel overnight. three people killed in a rocket attack after the israelis took out the top military commander of hamas in this strike on wednesday. we'll have a live report from tel aviv coming up straight

formidable opponent, senator john mccain, he's becoming prepare ared for what could be a high-profile nomination fight. mccain and lindsey graham said he will not support the nomination of ambassador rice if she's nominate. >> we will do what we can do block the nomination. >> i don't trust her. i thought she should know better. if she didn't snow better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> their chief complaint is they disqualified herself several days after the benghazi on a slew of shows, including "meet the press." >> our current assessment is what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction of what had transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations at our facility in cairo. >> at his news conference, a visibly angry obama fired back. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her rep
.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. you're about to hear a tape of senator john mccain's contentious exchange with cnn. also, we've seen pictures like this of the benghazi compound on september 11th, but today for the first time lawmakers are seeing surveillance video of the assault that killed the united states ambassador, three other americans. i'll talk to one u.s. senator about what that video shows. and mitt romney's speaking out about his election loss blaming what he calls gifts -- that's a quote, gifts, the president people gave to people who voted for him. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> tempers flaring on capitol hill. senator john mccain lashing out at one of our cnn producers who questioned why he was missing a key hearing on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. mccain has been a sharp critic of the president and his administration complaining lawmakers are not getting enough information. and when asked why he missed that meeting today, he lashed out. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is up on capitol hill. she's got more on thi
, extremely interesting when president obama was asked about comments from his former opponent, john mccain, who made some nasty comments about susan rice, the united states ambassador to the u.n. and she may well be the head of the state department soon. here's the president responding in a very personal way. i thought this was really a moment here. >> let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemlary work. she has represented the united states and united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and great. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose -- if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity -- the state department, then i will nominate her. that's not a determination i've made yet. >> why don't you be our u.n. interpreter right now and explain all the elements of that amazing response. it was personal, poignant, emotional, al
janesville. >> john mccain got 30%. i think we got higher than that. >> a little bit. >> a little bit. janesville has always voted democrat top of the ticket. wisconsin has always voted democrat top of the ticket except for the reagan '84 landslide. so we knew it was an uphill battle but still fought. >> reporter: the president wins 330 some electoral votes, every battleground state with the exception of north carolina. does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so because they also re-elected the house republican so whether people intended or not we've got divided government. >> reporter: you don't think there is a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. i think these ideas we talked see, i think these ideas we talked about are popular ideas. this was a close election. and unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means i think both parties have to talk to each other. >> reporter: could you see supporting a p
much earlier. now today senator john mccain did come out in support of petraeus and general allen saying we need to wait for due process and wait for the investigations to be complete before passing any judgment. live in washington, danielle nottingham, allen, back to you. >> thanks so much. >>> after a long weekend, washington is back to work on the problem of pulling america back from the edge of that fiscal cliff. the new year will bring automatic tax hikes and drastic spending cuts unless congress can cut a deal on the deficit. both sides seem ready to give a little. democrats by cutting some entitlement spending and republicans by increasing revenues through tax reform. >> we're ready to find common ground, ready to find common ground on revenue. not as i said, because any of us actually thinks the government needs any more of it. but because democrats from the president on down have said they are willing to punish everyone if they don't get it. >> reporter: president obama meets on friday with leaders on both sides to try to hammer out a deal. >>> a sigh of relief for studen
for secretary of state. senators including john mccain and lindsey graham say what led americans surrounded the attacks in benghazi. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi? and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation, it's outrageous. >> "outfront" tonight, rand paul of kentucky. he serves on the homeland security committee and senator paul, senator lindsey graham responded, i wanted to quote it. mr. president, don't think for one minute i don't hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you failed as commander in chief before, during and after the attack. i have no intention of promoting anyone who was up to their eyeballs in the benghazi debacle. >> i think there's two questions. everybody's been emphasizing whether or not it was right for her to go out and say this was caused by some crazy movie made by some low budget
. then there is this big question, catherine, which john mccain is pushing for, a special investigation, a panel, a select committee to be put in place. is there any chance of that? >> reporter: well there seems to be some immediate pushback. to lay it out for folks. we have three senior senate republicans who believe the fallout from benghazi is so significant it is on par with some of the major scandals of american history. >> watergate investigation benefited from a joint select committee. iran-contra benefited from a select committee. i think finding the truth about benghazi is only possible if you combine the resources of these three committees and do it in a professional manner. >> reporter: shortly after that announcement the senate majority leader harry reid said he would not support the proposal and there has also been hesitation from other republicans and moderates in the senate saying that the proposal is premature. >> i think we ought to give the established committees of the congress an opportunity to see where we can get in answering some of the questions that everybody has. >> i do not see
there was john mccain was too moderate. our principles weren't on the ballot. they got some validation in 2010 when the tea party took over the republican party and used fear, hatred and anger to ride to a midterm electoral win. in a presidential year when the whole country is turning out it's a different matter. the problem for the republican party is as the establishment says, we are to come back to the center, where the country is, back to policies that make sense to people, is they've spent so long using that fear, riding that fear, that hatred, that, you know, that fear of the other, to electoral wins that they've trained their base that this is where they need to be. so, it's going to be very hard, republican members of congress are going to be looking over their shoulder, wondering if they're going to be primaried by a tea party group, and it's going to be hard for -- they will have to be politically courageous, something they're not good at doing, to come back to the center. >> now, steve, the base, where is the base? because if the base is the tea partyers, wouldn't they in some ways
what john mccain said right before his meeting today. here it is. >> my focus is on four dead americans, all of them brave, unnecessarily, and what is clearly of all the earmarks of a cover-up. >> was there a cover-up? >> well, erin, there is still an awful lot of questions to be answered. of course, there's an investigation being undertaken now by admiral mullen, former head of our joint chiefs of staff, as well. and when that process plays out, we're going to have a lot more answers to questions about what happened. the key thing right now, though, i think -- and i think senator mccain would agree with this, we need to make sure we do everything possible to bring to justice those who committed these acts that led to the death of four americans. that's the most important thing right now, in addition to making sure that every embassy, every consulate, every -- every installation where we have our diplomats who are very brave americans on the ground doing important work that we do everything we can to secure them. but i think that we're going to have more answers when we go through the p
